Transatlantic (TAC) triples its land mass size, taking in all of Africa, the Middle East, and western Asia which includes again Russia (Moscow was a part of TAC back in the 60s; now both St. Petersburg and Moscow are a part of TAC). Far East gains the eastern part of Asia as well as Australia, New Zealand and the Indian Ocean sub-continent, basically doubling it's land mass."
